Kenny Baas-Schwegler is a software engineer and consultant focusing on building quality into software delivery at Xebia. He mentors, coaches, and consults teams by using practices, techniques, and tools from Domain-riven Design, Behaviour-driven Development, Test-driven Development, and Continuous Delivery.
Through Aikido training, he learned the most efficient way to work together. To get the outcome that all parties want, energy should not be blocked but should be bent and influenced. The philosophy behind this line of reasoning is not only embedded in his personal life, but also in his work life. He is an advocate for multidisciplinary collaboration in open spaces. By using and combining tools such as EventStorming and Example Mapping, he helps engineer requirements to design and model software. With these approaches, he aims to create a transparent, collaborative space with constant and instant feedback when delivering software.
